Billy's Info...

Billy's Story...
Billy: 1 yr old black & tan male, neutered, docked tail and uncropped ears. 16", 14 lb. Rescued from shelter.
Billy is a one year old Min Pin bundle of joy & energy. Billy was turned into a shelter due to him being too energetic. He is neutered and healthy.
Billy loves other small dogs (especially other young Min Pins) and cuddling & burrowing underneath the blankets. He is very affectionate . He shares food , toys and treats nicely with other dogs. He is high energy and would do best in a home where he can be walked several times a day at a fast pace or have a fenced in yard to run. He is still learning to walk on a leash - for this he requires a 4 - 6 foot leash (a retractable is not advised as he needs to receive direction). He does best on a well fitted collar as a harness causes him to pull at his walker.
We are working at potty training. He has some trouble "holding it" so he would do best in a home that has a stay at home / work from home owner that can take him out 8-10 times per day .Pad training is not advised.With direction he should be able to be quickly potty trained . He currently attends doggie daycare is uses the grass potty with no problems. If left in a crate for more then 2 hours he does have accidents. Billy is not interested in toys , likes having the ball thrown and and romping with his Min Pin foster brothers.
Billy does have food sensitivity, he was malnourished at a young age so he requires a high quality food. He currently eats a Salmon Blend Holistic food. He does break out in hives when given general grade treats - also has dust , cleaning product and cat allergies.
Billy is very friendly with people once he gets to know them, he can be nippy if he is abruptly picked up . He does bark at stranger however if Billy were to attend a series of training classes with his new owner this would assist with his confidence.
Billy is skittish around small children. Billy would be the perfect doggie for a dog saavy , energetic owner who would be willing to take the time to provide him with guidance and training.
His foster Mom will provide a local adopter (Buffalo area) with free beginner & basic training classes along with a year of free doggie daycare at her daycare facility located in Amherst NY.
Note: Billy is located in Amherst , NY - and we will not fly this boy.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Billy, a Syracuse Miniature Pinscher dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Miniature Pinscher for sale in Syracuse, or seeking a Miniature Pinscher dog from a breeder in Syracuse.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Syracuse already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Syracuse breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Miniature Pinscher breeders who help with Miniature Pinscher rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Syracuse paves the way for another one to be saved.
